Product Details

Product Description


One of Ireland's best-loved folk music ensembles mixes traditional Irish holiday fare with more familiar carols and songs. For those who prefer the latter, there's "The Christmas Traveller," Miss Fogarty's Christmas Cake," "Christmas in Killarney," and "Bells Over Belfast," sung as a prayer for peace in Northern Ireland. The Irish Rovers are primarily a vocal group, and their robust singing is prominently featured in the mix, sometimes to the detriment of the spirited instruments such as fiddle, flute, pipes, bouzouki, and bones. That said, this is still a merry set of tunes, contagious for its sense of good cheer, camaraderie, and sense of humor (the Rovers cover that old fractured favorite "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer"). Just try to sit still or not sing along when the lads break into "Christmas Caroling" with all the gusto of a good round of pints at the pub. --Martin Keller

5.0 out of 5 stars It Can Be Christmas All Year Round Oct. 18 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
SONGS OF CHRISTMAS contains a wonderful mixture of songs--old ones, new ones, traditional Christmas songs, ones with an Irish twist--and of course, "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer," sung wonderfully by John Reynolds. "Bells Over Belfast," written and sung by George Millar, is a lovely song of hope, in the spirit of the season, for lasting peace in Northern Ireland. George also sings the brisk-paced "The Christmas Traveller" (if you don't sing along on the chorus, you're probably in a coma) and the tender lullaby, "All Through the Night." Would swooning over "Silent Night" be improper? Regardless, it's a good bet Joe Millar's fans will set their CD players to continuously repeat that and his other solo, "Away In a Manger." Wallace Hood sings the serious religious song, "What Child Is This?" and later puts the right tone of craziness into "Miss Fogarty's Christmas Cake"--a tale about the problems suffered by those invited to eat it. "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" finishes the CD. It's sung with appropriate gusto by the entire group, with each of the singers taking turns on the verses, and the excellent arrangement includes a well-fitting Irish tune at the beginning and end. As a nice bonus, the insert includes lyrics, invaluable if you like to sing along but don't yet know all the words. If you're reading this at a time when you think it's too early to be thinking of Christmas, this CD could change your mind. After a listen, you may be seized by the urge to run out and buy a Christmas tree, even if it's the middle of June.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Standout CD for Both Irish Rovers and Christmas Dec 10 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a long-time fan of the Irish Rovers and like most anything they do, but this is an exceptionally good Christmas collection of traditional and new songs. "Bells Over Belfast" is a beautiful and timely song of hope, the old favorites are given a straightforward rendition that suits them and several new ones are lively and fun in the Rovers tradition--"Christmas Caroling", "The Christmas Traveller", "Miss Fogarty's Christmas Cake", etc. Altogether a terrific Christmas CD that will lift your spirits and make you smile.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Miss Fogarty's Christmas Cake & Christmas Traveller" Dec 7 2001
By J. Lovins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This quintet started out in the late 1950s---and by the mid 1960s a popular folk ensemble on two continents...lacking the traditional sound, with relatively little scholarship...this fine group of artists with their exuberance, boisterous energy plus hardwork have a core of devoted fans.
Universal/Hip-O presents this album with fourteen festive and joyous songs to celebrate Holiday Season---some stand outs are "BELLS OVER BELFAST"..."CHRISTMAS CAROLING"..."MISS FOGARTY'S CHRISTMAS CAKE", wonderful arrangements and the spirit of traditional themes---my highlight pick is "THE CHRISTMAS TRAVELLER", recently composed with a high spirited telling of the "Birth of Jesus", spiritual lyrics with folk-style passages telling of a newborn child and a Holy Light...lively, unforgettable, lingering within your heart.
Hip-O and The Irish Rovers have captured the season with this album..."Songs Of Christmas", recommend you pick this one up, feel the flow and the real meaning of Christmas!

I have loved the Irish Rovers since I was a young teen and The Unicorn Song was published in America. Some of my favorites are on this album and it is good to hear them in full voice.
5.0 out of 5 stars Bells Over Belfast Feb. 10 2010
By Starr A. Sellars - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The CD arrived even more promptly than exprected from this vendor and in excellent condition.

My granddaughter danced to this tune (Bells Over Belfast) in her Celtic Christmas Dance recital in December. I wanted to surprise her with the exact same tune and found it on Amazon by The Irish Rovers.

She was delighted and has spent many happy hours dancing to this tune and others on the CD.
